Become a Sponsor

Be part of an exciting program that helps students across the Kingston area participate in the FIRST Robotics Competition; a unique sporting competition of the mind, designed to help high school students discover the interests and rewards of engineering and science. Each year, in January, a new game is announced. The rules and guidelines change but the challenge does not: build a robot in 6 weeks, and within budget and specifications, to play the game. This is real world engineering.

Our budget for the 2018 season is $45,000. We are funded through sponsorship, fundraising, and participants. We endeavour to keep participant costs as low as possible. FIRST Robotics Competitions provide a unique opportunity to market your brand. In addition to thousands of students at competition, your logo will be:

  • Broadcast to a wide audience
  • Accessible (and clickable) on our website
  • Visible when our team does community outreach such as Science Rendezvous and school demonstrations
  • Prominently displayed at events to industry professionals across Ontario

We invite you to partner with Lake Effect Robotics at one of the following levels. For more information, please see our full sponsorship package.
